Book Series I Want To Continue in 2018


This is going to be a list of excuses, basically.
These are some series/trilogies I would like to continue in 2018. I do prefer to binge read series’ from start to finish but for some reason, I didn’t do it with these books. Most of these series I started in 2017 and just never bothered to pick up the rest, despite actually wanting to continue. 2018 is the year I change that!

Lord of The Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien
I read the first two books in 2016 and never continued onto Return of The King. Although I wasn’t *that* keen on the first two, I still want to read the last one just so I can say I have finished the series. I always want to pick up The Hobbit this year, unlike Lord of the Rings, I haven’t been spoiled for anything that happens in this book and I don’t know any major plotlines.

The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson
Again, wasn’t super in love with the first book but everyone raves about this series and Brandon Sanderson is my favourite author so I’m willing to give Words of Radiance a go. Hoping to get around to this soon, but not super worried as these books take a while to come out!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I am loving these books so far and cannot wait to see where the story goes! Days of Blood and Starlight was my first read of 2018, I LOVED it.  I am also hoping to get to Dreams of Gods and Monsters really, really soon! And hopefully the novella Night of Cake & Puppets this year. I am still looking for the UK hardback of Dreams of Gods and Monsters to match the first two but I can’t seem to find it anywhere for a decent price. 😦

Summoner by Taran Matharu
I read the first book (The Novice) back in June and I enjoyed reading it, it’s a decent YA fantasy and the first book was a good set up for the rest of the books. Hoping to read at least the next book this year (hopefully more).

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I read the first two books in 2017, I enjoyed them and want to continue reading them as the last book is out this year. I just picked up King’s Cage, hoping to finish it soon, I am not enjoying this one as much as I thought I would. I will continue the series as I have made it this far, I might as well finish the series and read War Storm when that comes out.

Let me know any series you will be continuing in 2018, I’d love to know!
Have a great weekend!

  1. I need to start the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. And I agree about the red queen series. By the second half of Glass Sword I was starting to lose interest but I got King’s Cage anyway and decided to stick the series through. In 2018, I would like to finish some old series I never got around tot reading the last book for. Right now Im finishing the Hush, Hush and Fallen series.

  2. Laini Taylor’s writing is just too good! I saw the third book on abebooks the other day btw, I’m trying to get the UK hardbacks as well. If you don’t mind them being second hand it’s cheap and the books are usually in good condition 🙂 Also I had the opposite with Red Queen haha (I hated the second book and loved the third)

  3. Great list! I really want to continue the DOAB series too! Daughter of Smoke and Bone was actually the last book I read in 2017 and I completely fell in love with it! Red Queen and the Summoner series are books I want to pick up but I’m a little hesitant.
